Two and a half thousand students from Okehampton, Tavistock and Holsworthy Colleges have attended the first academy-wide Careers' Fair, hosted by the Ashbury Golf Hotel.

The event, sponsored by Willmott Dixon, has taken place over a two-day period to provide young people with the chance to learn more about the opportunities available to them once they leave school.

Seventy-five stallholders attended from universities, workplaces and apprenticeship courses showcasing a wide range of different career paths students can take.

Derrick Brett, executive director of civic leadership at the Dartmoor Multi Academy Trust, said: 'We are very lucky we can work across the schools to provide things such as this. We could not have been more successful.'
